to add on the other use and the small office and sometimes the professional might be appropriate depending on their size and i see you have restricted the depth and size of these and come to where they are appointments and go to the retail and i know there is a lot of va can sis and unfortunately many of the filling places can't do anything that and to think about a way to craft it narrowly and with the medical professional offices and not bring in things that would not keep the area vibrant. and many retail will close at 6:00 or 7:00 anyway as do many of the business and professional offices which is something to think about. >> and post redevelopment and down the corridor is restaurants and restaurants and areas that go past #:00 p.m. and i can't tell you if it will have the desired effect and there is room for more in that area. >> and something you utilize the up floors and other uses and restaurants cannot and there is plenty of vacancy. >> okay. and not below the store front and i don't want to replace anybody. i want it all for the community, but i believe it has to be pro
this opportunity in challenge us all to take all the information, the ideas and the best intentions from today and make a real commitment to work together to make our schools and our streets safer. i know that's a no brainer and something said a million times in the past. but my experience to work together and really collaborate is much more difficult that most of us are willing to commit. it's easy to do things on our own. we can do things the way we want to and all the credit is ours if we are successful. we can accomplish so much more together than we ever could on our own. to work together. the first thing we have to do is look within. it's easy to play the blame game and see the fault in others. the cbo's aren't doing they are supposed to. no it's the police's fault. it's city haul's fault. but in the end. that gets us nowhere. we can never truly work together unless we stop assigning blame. the second thing we must do. we must be open to the possibility there's a better way to do things. too often as i sat through discussions ask encountered reluctance to change. i would ask you if we h
and we are on item 11, case 2010.0628c and is a request for conditional use authorization at 23rd and 24th street. >> i recommend the approval with conditions to allow the establishment of a full-service restaurant doing business as pollo campero and is including an outdoor activity area that is not contiguous to the front property line. this project is being proposed between the mission street and commercial transit district and the planning department recommends approval with conditions at 2740 on the west side of mission street between 23rd and 24th street if proposed project is found to be necessary and desirable because it will occupy a currently vacant store front and create 70 new employment in the mission district which will be open to workers of lesser skill set. it is found necessary and desirable because the project is the neighborhood serving use and more importantly a use that will serve the expanding latin american imgrant community and add to the diverse at this time of the latin american fare in an area known for the heart of latino life and is necessary and desirable to

"nightly news" begins now. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> good evening. the president of the united states is now on record. the longtime leader of libya needs to leave and change must come now to libya. this is how the president put it at the white house today. >> let me just be very unambiguous about this. colonel gadhafi needs to step down from power and leave. that is good for his country. it is good for his people. it's the right thing to do. >> of course, that brings us to the question of how to do that, how to finish what the libyan uprising has started. there's more support growing for a so-called no-fly zone, but the defense secretary is warning
understand the importance of broadband and encourage them to participate to use broadband in their daily lives. things like -- things like how to find a job online, how to access city services online, how to communicate with family members. those types of things will be handled primarily by our community partners, but in the department of technology, we need administrative personnel to help us manage that and make sure they are doing what they are supposed to be doing under the grant. supervisor mirkarimi: that sounds great, but to me, it is just a question of growing government more so and not really understanding what the total objective is. when we benefit from these federal grants, i am not seeing what the goals are, at least not in what is provided before us. i also want to take this gratuitous moment to remind the department of technology, that if part of the premise -- for me, and us -- is to build inclusion of san franciscans into having access to technology, being able to elevate their level of information, and transmitting and receiving, i do not understand, ofor $60,000, of do
, the use of martyrs, tanks, and air support from the gaddafi's side. this morning, there were a couple of bombings from pro- gaddafi war planes. currently, rebel forces have moved in to the natural gas refinery, the second-largest in the country, and have now secured the premises. round one has gone to the opposition. the khadafy regime does not seem to be phased at all by these setbacks. he is railing against the west and the international community, and particularly the united states. he went on to say that there is no uprising, and no protests. he continues to say this is all about al qaeda. >> as the violence intensified in libya, u.s. officials are deciding whether to impose a new no-fly zone. defense secretary robert gates says that establishing a no-fly zone is the first move in an attack on libya, which requires a serious consideration. in the meantime, several u.s. warships have moved into the region to assist in relief efforts and evacuation. officials say the deadly shooting of two u.s. airmen in germany yesterday may have been political. be shooter confessed to starting mem
and desire to do both. we would like the to consider that as an option. at the end of the day, uses, as i said it earlier, in emeryville, and development that got a lead putnam award, has a lead market, theaters, restaurants, a mixed use, that this site deserves. in san francisco, we have done theaters and restaurants, again, combined with historic buildings, such as 1000 van ness. at the end of the day, the trick to this will be the financial commitment to getting this thing approved through the different agencies, designed properly and ultimately to poke a tenant from the bay area or san francisco. we have done deals with sales z forcesales zynga, microsoft, and the like, but this will appeal to the whole bay area. which is why we feel the sobrato partnering was a fabulous opportunity for us, for the city, and ports. with that, we are very excited about this project. this is sort of a culmination of what we do. pier 70 would be a highlight of our company and the sobrato organization as well. thank you for your time. thank you. all but three seconds. >> port city is next. i think this is
,000. should we continue to use them, we would still have more than that amount. we were paying for his services at $344 an hour. we have negotiated that down to $250. we think we can come at a much lower budget and a much lower price range. staff is asking for your approval to open up a contract so we can continue to use his services as we have done in the past. >> any questions on this item? a quick question if i may. everything is essentially pretty comparable perio. >> we bapay $250 for his services. it is a lower rate. supervisor campos: is there any member of the public that would like to speak on this item? public comment is closed. colleagues, if we can have a motion on item #6. to enter into agreement is with the management consultant. seconded by commissioner avalos. without objection. thank you. can you please call item no. 5? this is an item that i asked the executive officer to prepare. it is essentially a study that would be conducted through the lafco for purposes of ascertaining the collection, hauling, and disposal of the refuse of trash. this is collected -- connected
will conclude with that. it is going to continue to be a useful tool. i am available for questions. commissioner brandon: thank you. any questions or comments? is there any public comment on this item? >> i have one question. you referred a moment ago to a congressional leader of the funding. a euphemism, but that is okay. do we expect to be affected by the lack thereof in any other way? have there been other congressional directed monies that we have received that we now may have did battle a little bit more for? >> we had about -- we had $8 million in committee markups that were coming into this year prior to the ban on earmarks. we are looking very good for the port. it was consistent with what we have received in the past. we had the backing of speaker pelosi. then everything changed. the ray of hope is that because, in particular, the army corps budget and defense budget and to a lesser extent, the transportation budget, are so driven by project funding and what is now considered an earmark, there is a great deal of speculation about how they will do what has been done many times in the pas
antonini: i have a couple of questions. and while this is not, of course, all that is before us is approval of the inventory, not the issue regarding the conversions. but it just seemed a little curious to me that there was this, if you will, grandfathered provision where you would have been able to have converted up to 550 large tourist hotel rooms and done so in a timely manner and now since that's expired it sounds like in order to have conversions as the current law is, you have to have the establishment and equal number of hotel rooms, if i am reading this correctly. >> the administrative code you are somewhat correct. the administrative code only allows for that one-time 550 allotment. that has gone. and the way the administrative code reads is it that's on a 100 room basis and if we have 100 rooms put into the city that meet that deaf situation, you can have a hearing and an allot 100 rooms. if there is a desire to establish another large queue such as another 550-room conversion, that would have to be legislated back into the administrative code. and currently that was the way it wa
has agreed -- and your piece is in it, awele -- the superintendent has agreed that it be used districtwide. just this week, i was hearing that the rigor and relevance of the material actually got students engaged and got the score is up. while the score is being up is not the only thing, i do want to say there is real value in making curriculum relevant, truthful, and rigorous, and one of the ways of doing that would be to embed all of this into all subjects all year for all the students. [applause] >> if i could just show that on friday, ms. colvin spent the whole day at alameda county juvenile hall, and i think we saw eight different units of young men and women, 14 to 18, medium-security, and they were riveted to their seats. when we were looking like we were running out of time, we were told not to worry about the time. they shared poetry. one young woman suggested how -- they share how they are trying to transform their lives, and listening to her story and transformation, and it was a very powerful date. >> this is for one of my heroes, claudette colvin. and a local hero

of land that ended up in this 317 acres. the park, as a general rule, is heavily used in the mornings and the evenings. one of the favorite places is up by the upper reservoir because dogs get to go swim. it's extremely popular. many fights in the city, as you know, about dogs in parks. we have 317 acres and god knows there's plenty of room for both of us. man and his best friend. early in the morning people before they go to work will walk their dogs or go on a jog themselves with their dogs. joggers love the park, there's 7 miles of hiking trails and there's off trail paths that hikers can take. all the recreational areas are heavily used on weekends. we have the group picnic area which should accommodate 200 people, tennis courts are full. it also has 3 playground areas. the ampitheater was built in 1972. it was the home of the first blues festival. given the fact that jerry garcia used to play in this park, he was from this neighborhood, everybody knows his reputation. we thought what a great thing it would be to have an ampitheater named after jerry garcia. that is a name that ha
always say, something like this cannot happen without a committee of people involved. with us today, trevor hunnicut, who started the program off, who say member of the board of drorves the society. lamont bishop is a stalwart member -- where are you? in the back. he's a represent of senator mark leno's office. b.j. jones from public utilities commission is here. stewart. from the public library. and pete fitzsimmons and tannish col -- hollins and camille dawkins. camille is over here. without camille and tannish rkt , none of this happens. so let's give them a round of applause for their wonderful effort. the society's primary mission is to enlighten, to inform, to inspire and to empower. we achieve that mission in a variety of ways. almost always in partnership with others. through our current partnership that trevor spoke to with the finance -- kinsey foundation shall the san francisco public library, and the california council of the humanities, we are now hosting an incredible exhibition of art and artifacts from the kinsey collection, the kron -- that chronicles the story of p
equivalent of energy is used by the peace. >> we have a solar array on city lights bookstore, which collects more energy than we actually use for the peace. >> what we walked across the street and take a look at this work. >> the inspiration for getting the books to be suspended and lit at night. how did that come about? >> after about two weeks of trying to put together a lot of the ideas of the signs, the poetry, the music, the history, the art, movement and the architecture and the materials of the signs that already were on around here, they all kind of came together in this vision of a form of books eliminated. taking on the role of the flickering light. -- books illuminated. also, the metaphor of ideas taking flights and flying through the air. like ideas of consciousness drifting from one person to another through language. >> the origins of this work really are quite pedestrian. the idea was that the department of traffic wanted to eliminate a right turn from columbus on to broadway, right? i know that project started several years ago, so you have to work collaborative we for that t
at the university of maryland. peter, it's good to have you with us. >> nice to be here. >> what happens in june, though. we can all guess what might happen. what are the realities once the fed stops buying the treasury. >> we can expect mortgage rates to rise. that won't be good for what is already a quite weak housing market. on top of that, the economy has got a negative on it from higher gas prices, higher food prices. but this cut in social security tax compensates for that. well, come june with commodity prices continue to go rise, interest prices go up, that could slow the recovery. >> how can we compensate for this extra $75 billion that the fed was providing each month? with that going away, where are we going to get the cash infusion that's going to keep things in the economy that we bounce back to this level suspended at? >> well, we just can't invent that money. it's going to be to be tapped off other things. more competition for capital which means folks who want to buy a house will pay a higher interest rate. the brief recovery we had in prices is petering away. i think it really s
a database that will allow us to find the right match when someone needs help. we use on-line tools to help communicate with them and track them so that a minimum of staff hours are used. we see nothing less than the creation of community 21st century style. we call our neighbors neighbors, not volunteers. we aim to growth in our communities and help out. being connected to those around us is simply and not so simply a taken for granted part of life. >> thank you. >> good morning. i am dr. amy it there, an emeritus professor and former chair of the department of counseling at san francisco state university. one of my accomplishments during my tenure in the department was creating and implementing a specialization n gentle on the counseling in partnership with the master's program in gerontology more than 15 years ago. i am a friend, if you will, of the next program, as i am a resident of maryland law park. i am here to do a test to the dedication, talent, and the plain hard work of these board members who wish to provide a vehicle for services and support to their neighbors as they age. the
was built in 1913, but the national elevator cut actually was not introduced until 1921. >> tell us about this antique controller. what makes it different from a modern controller? >> the elevator is running on the original d.c. power. really simple in operation. does not include a lot of the features we would have in an elevator today, automatic door operation, dispatching, push button operation. none of those features are present, but this is the original from 1913. on this side, we have all the relays that actually control the elevator. the safety service -- city circuit, position, speed, and control of the power to the motor. >> here is a really interesting piece of historic machinery. tell us about this. >> this is one of the main safety devices of the elevator system, and the device still exists today even on modern elevators. it detects if the elevator is going into unsafe over speed conditions. it is attached to the road itself, and the car over speeds, bees fly balls would come out, and the governor jobs would come out and grab on to the governor wrote, which would hold the break

. the government seems to have tripoli relatively tied up. you can travel around town and they are busing us around town. there are organized demonstrations in support of gaddafi. it's hard to get people openly able to speak to us. they really seem to have tripoli under control. you can go 20 kilometers down the road and find people who are against gaddafi. >> thank you very much. that is our reporter in tripoli, paul. let's discuss the concept of what the international community can do to try to force colonel gaddafi out of power. that is what president obama, prime minister david cameron in the u.k., and others have said they want to do. how did they make that happen? the idea of a no-fly zone has been discussed, of course. let's talk a little bit about that with michael from the washington institute in the united states. thank you for joining us. what's the view of a no-fly zone from where you are in washington? >> i would say the view is split in washington. the government has been cautious on the idea. it looks like the -- it looks like the obama administration is not moving forward asking for
in the police field. i hear it is improving recently. in regards to serving the community, for using this money, since it is in the millions of dollars, i would like to make a controversial suggestion and see where it goes from here. according to my work experience at san francisco general hospital, it is a sad commentary that much of the time he used by city employees using city in -- computers has been underutilized. one of the things that i would like to point out, which many consider a taboo subject, is how much pornography actually flows through the city's various computers during the workday. i have a suspicion the comptroller's office has some information in regards to that, but i do not know for sure. i think it is proper to maybe do an investigation using this grant money, to see how much actual pornography flows through the city's best computer system during the workday. my main interest is not only on pornography, but also to highlight the federal law enforcement efforts on the very sensitive subject of child pornography. thank you. supervisor chu: thank you. is there anyone from the
in the clinic. certainly we have had healthy san francisco participants who have called us asking us the status of the clinic and whether or not they could perhaps change clinics and select another clinic, and we have allowed individuals to do that because we think it is prudent to do and it provides peace of mind for those remaining healthy san francisco participants. there are currently just under 1000 of these participants who have selected lyon-martin out of their current client base of about 2500. we have started the process, the issue that supervisor mirkarimi raised, in terms of transfer. we recognize and the clinic recognizes that it needs to search for people who are financially viable. so with the help of the board, we have identified the clam population -- the client population through special provisions, either those who have hiv and/or aids status, those who are transgendered, and we have reached out within the department of public health at asked each of our clinics, all 60 primary care clinics, how many individuals you could take with the special conditions and when could you tak

the comments you have just made. i think you have made clear how many of the tools we have used in the past are not available to us this year. this is my first time on the budget committee. in prior years, i have been intimately involved with the former chairperson, i am hopeful we ill hav -- will have a bit of a different budget process this year. i hope over the next couple of months is that rather than going through a typical kabuki style process, we don't have a good sense of the options and we will be able to have much more open and transparent conversations about that before the budget is presented on june 1. once we get to a budget, we will have a clear sense of what the hard choices are. i am hopeful that given what i think of as a bit of a difference in the relationship between the legislative branch and the executive-branch, we will be able to do that. one question about the presentation, on page 14, you talked about the one-time solutions that will be in the same place next year. you referred to fees, federal stimulus funds. we know that we will not be able to rely on these next

, and other u.s. officials and more pressure today from john mccain about what the military options might be. mccain now joining john kerry and others, calling for a no-fly zone and pushback from the pentagon, despite denials, i know, that the pentagon spokesman was on your show earlier at 9:00, saying that there has been no pushback. but certainly, what we've seen from secretary gates and the chairman of the joint chiefs, admiral mullen, is emphasizing all of the drawbacks to getting involved militarily there. chuck? >> well, you laid it out very well there, andrea. secretary gates yesterday, in referring to the no-fly -- the talk about the no-fly zone as loose talk certainly created the impression that there was somehow a little bit of a disconnect between the state department and the pentagon, about what is next, how serious is this idea for a no-fly done. so clearly, that's one of the questions that's going to be directed at the president later today. now, let's be careful, by the way, not to call this a press conference. they are only saying one question, for, quote, each side. >> one!

started to do it over and over again. it was only 10 years later and that we began to see ways to use that in a more pro-active way. we would come out of a nightclub in new york city, my brother, my cousin, and i. we had had some experience with the police harassing us on the streets. this particular night, somebody had gotten into a fight, we were probably the only black folks in a white neighborhood the party that they were at, they were playing salsa, marvin gaye, and we were hanging out after the birthday party. we got caught up in a situation where the police had been called for shots fired. we happened to be the only black people there, they got us and put us in jail. that was the first day that you mentioned. the long and short of it is, i was in my second year of law school at the time. i am reading all these things about criminal procedure, criminal law. the stuff that is on the books is not what is happening on the streets. don't i have some kind of rights? miranda or something? they just did what they want and it was the first time that somebody had taken my body and had ph

us to be optimistic, the forecast for lyon-martin. understand how we got here, but look for all the indicators that i think really suggest that it could have a bright future. >> i think to the board's credit, they're really started moving on this quickly. they were provided a pro bono attorney, excellent in providing guidance. in my conversations with the board, they have been absolutely wonderful. she is a physician. that is not her area of expertise, i think should be the first to say, they put the budget together. they have done two turnarounds in two health centers in california. from what i am hearing, when i did reference checking, his last assignment at the coastal alliance was very happy with his work. he really made a difference up there. i think they're taking the right steps. the other thing, as you can imagine, the board was scared, not sure where to turn, and the attorneys helped with that. supervisor mirkarimi: very good. are there any other members of the consortium that would like to present? supervisor kim: just to get some clarification and the restructuring, i
